Active Perth bloggers

I have a confession.  I don’t really read other people’s blogs that much.   Sometimes just thinking about what I should blog about takes up enough time!

But last night I thought – there must be other bloggers in Perth.  I remember seeing some mention of a Perth bloggers meetup, but when I looked up the group in Facebook, it looked quite inactive.

Would bloggers want to meet up?

I think it would seem quite strange, meeting strangers, but knowing what they’ve been up to.

Anyway, I must have been bored last night, because I decided to try and find as many active Perth bloggers as I could.   And not surprisingly, in our little city of a ~1.6 million, there are quite a few blogs!

Here’s a list – by no ways definitive!  I’m sure there’s many other categories, but I’ve tried to list only those that are recently active.   If I’ve missed you out, and you update your blog regularly, let me know!

New blog header!

Don’t normally do a weekend blog post, but the girls are all asleep so I decided to do something I’ve been wanting to for ages – create a custom blog header!

I couldn’t decide between putting up one of the photos that I took myself, or putting up a family photo.  Since my blog is not just solely focussed on photography but more about life in general, I decided a family photo reflected the state of my blog at this time!

This great family photo was taken by my cousin’s wife in Singapore over 3 and a half years ago!   She runs a photo studio in Singapore called KidsPictures.  If you’re visiting or currently live in  Singapore and want some great natural family photos or photos of the kids, I definitely recommend going to see Anne.   She was so relaxed with us, made the kids feel really at ease and made us look great!   Visit the website here:  http://www.kidspictures.com.sg/
